A hearty vegetarian dinner from Revive Cafe !!

Whenever I try to be a vegetarian for a meal or two, I was always hesitant because the lack of options.
Often you can only opt for a carbo rich meal i.e  vegetarian lasagne that tastes like cheese on cardboards and
dodgy sandwiches with very little fibre. S and I try to have a few meat free meals a week because we think that it's good for us and eating less meat overall is probably a good thing for the environment.We went to Revive to take out 2 meals and 1 salad meal and then went for my short run in Cornwall Park before coming home without the stress of thinking what to make / buy for dinner.

I've recently bought a few $6 vouchers from Grab One and has been to Revive a few times to pack some dinners and I have to say that I really enjoy their food. Lots of veg, lentils and whole grains. I bought a hot pot of the day : Italian White Beans in a Romesco Sauce on Brown Rice which is Gluten Free too. I really enjoy the beans and sauce. I have only used white beans in salads and sometimes made into a dip but cooking it in a tomato base sauce is pretty good. I might cook mine with Barilla's Arabiata sauce for my pasta..yum!

Quinoa salad with broccoli. I never knew what to do with quinoa but making a salad with is so delicious and easy. Must try !

Moroccan Chickpeas (gluten free) and Fresh Vegetable Medley w Spinach, Carrot & Cauliflower . There was lots of food, no doubt but I don't mind refuelling my body with loads of goodness. Will definitely be getting more take-outs from Revive on weekdays. They different menu each day to keep the options interesting. Go to their website to view their latest updates:  
p/s: I don't work for or benefit in anyway from them. Just an honest recommendation especially if you are vegetarian and lives in Auckland Central.
